When we see with physical eyes we see the past but when we see with spiritual light we see the present

Written by 

From Ozodi Osuji's Daily Journal:

WE SEE THE PAST WHEN WE LOOK WITH PHYSICAL LIGHT BUT SEE THE PRESENT WHEN WE LOOK WITH SPIRITUAL LIGHT

We see the past if we look with physical light. Physical light travels at the speed of 186, 000 miles per second. At that speed we can see the moon (250, 000 miles away) in a little over a second, the sun in about nine minutes (that is how long it takes light to reach us from the sun, which is 93 million miles away...the sun we see now is how it was nine minutes ago...some of the stars we see is how they were billions of years ago when their light left; in fact, many of them are already exploded and are no longer in existence!).

You see the guy in front of you the way he was a moment ago when light hit his body and sent his image to your eyes to see him but you do not see him immediately, in the present.

We see the past, religionists tell us; they presuppose that we see with physical light thus limiting ourselves to the speed of light that shows us what we see as it was when light hit it, take a picture of it and sped off with it.

Entangled particles communicate instantaneously, with no time interval between them. That is, they do not recognize space, time and matter, which physical light does.

In God people see and experience things always in the present, for there is no space, time and matter between them. There is no past and future in God for past and future can only exist where there is space, time and matter.

Why am I saying all these things? It is because it is my chosen function to say so; religion is usually written in metaphors, in poetic language that few understand; I choose to recast it in the language of everyday living, in simple prose.

I write in simple language that even elementary school children can understand. Even though, if I choose to, I can write in the language of my profession but most of the time I choose to write in common prose so as to have all be able to read and understand what I write. What is the use of communication if ones language is wooly, convoluted and hifalutin and no one understands it?

THE EGO IS TOTALLY USELESS, SO WHY SHOULD ONE WANT TO BE IT?

The ego gives one fear, anger, sadness and other negative affects; the ego retards learning things and hinders making friends; the egoistic person is lonely and does not have friends.

A Nigerian paranoid egotist called Nebu Adiele comes to the public square to insult people; his ego correctly tells him that those he insults could shoot and kill him and put him out of his miserable existence, a pointless life dedicated to verbally abusing people. To keep his useless life seemingly alive he writes with a false name; nobody knows who he is. That is, to be an ego he sentences his meaningless self to anonymity and loneliness. He lives a pathetic, desperate existence. The egotist always lives a pathetic life. The gift of the ego is fear and loneliness.

Can someone please tell me one positive attribute of the ego other than the false sense of importance and power it gives its owner, a false power that the person must constantly defend; the false must be defended to seem real; that which must be defended to seem real is not real; the real needs no defense to be real; if one is truly powerful one would not have to defend that power!

The egotist is not important or powerful by merely assuming to be so. The ego is useless and must be let go, all of it; do not keep even a little of it for to do so is to feel pain.  The ego only gives us pain.

People do not realize how light and simple life is when one lives without the ego and its pretensions of grandiose power and importance.

Since I stopped thinking and behaving from the ego my life feels literally like light.

SOMETIMES DEATH IS A FAVOR FOR A PERSON

If a person is not doing anything that is socially useful to other people and just exists like an animal that is not living; in such instances death does one favor and kills one.

My friend Mike  was living to gratify his ego's desire to seem important and would not go socialize with people or help people in one way or another; it was better that he died.

My uncle Adolphus and my cousin Innocent were not living for causes greater than their puny egos and died. Upon leaving secondary school and was going to the USA both of them gave me about three hundred dollars each. I did not know that they meant it as a loan, for a few months later they asked me to give them back their money. I was shocked but complied. A few years later both died. In my opinion, they deserved to die because if they could not give a studious boy some freaking chomp change and not ask him to pay it back to them they were not living socially serving lives and therefore death was a mercy for both of them (and come to think of it, my father brought both of them to Lagos and they lived with us; my mother fed them until father got them jobs and they finally moved out of our house; what an ungrateful bunch they were!).

A COURSE IN MIRACLES DID NOT PROMISE YOU A DEATHLESS BODY

A course in miracles says that if you change your mind, that is, now use it to love other sons of God in bodies and forgive them their wrongs towards you that your body would be physically healthy. Come to think about it I have not really taken any medication since age nineteen.  The book says that you live in a healthy body and use that body to love other people and when you are done doing what you came to do you lay your body down and die; that is, move on to the world of light forms.

I found it necessary to clarify this question because some religious folks engage in magical thinking and believe that their bodies would not die. Your body will eventually die; however, if you live from love you can occasionally see you in your light body; in that light body you transcend the limitations of space, time and matter (mere wish to be somewhere can take you to it... teleportation and other so-called miracles).

As long as you live in body made of dense matter that body will die (120 years is the limit that the human body can live).

If you live in the light form you will not die. Why? It is because God, via his Holy Spirit created the body in light forms and what God created does not die.  The light formed self will be gently translated into spirit, heaven (heaven is the place of formless light selves).

What God made does not die but what the son of God made to hide from God, ego and body, must die for the wages of sin, separation, is death.

The ego and its body were designed to enable us to hide from God and therefore is a means of separation; separation is wat Christians call sin.

The wages of sin is death. The ego and body must die for they were designed to sin with, to separate with. Even Jesus, the most advanced teacher of God... he totally let go of his ego and lived from the Holy Spirit directed part of his mind... had to die.

As long as Jesus lived in body and ego he had to die. He was crucified and died. What resurrected was his light body, not his dense body. He went to his apostles in his light form and showed it to them. His old body died.

How do I know this to be true?  It is because I am a teacher of God and know these things. At any rate, I do talk to the old boy; my explanations are as good as his.

WORLD TEACHERS OF GOD LIKE JESUS AND BUDDHA, WHILE ON EARTH DO SEE THEMSEVES IN LIGHT FORMS, BUT THEIR BODIES STILL DIE; I HAVE, ON EARTH, SEEN MY LIGHT FORMED SELF.

WE HAVE ALREADY FORMED BODIES, EGOS AND HUMAN PERSONALITIES; ALL WE CAN NOW DO IS CHOOSE NOT TO SEE THE WORLD WITH OUR EGO EYES AND SEE IT WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT'S EYES

As long as you are in this world you have already manifested in body and ego and have a human personality, healthy or disordered personality. You think in a certain manner, a manner made necessary by your specific bodily constitution and social experiences.

All you can now do is choose not to respond to things from the perspective of your old personality, the ego you formed in childhood; you can now overlook your ego and personality and look at the world from love.

In every situation you find yourself in you pause and ask the Holy Spirit, that is, love, to show you how to respond to it.

Before you do anything you pause and evaluate how your ego would see it and how love/the Holy Spirit would see it and you choose to respond to it as you believe that love would do.

The Holy Spirit sees things from the perspective of what is good for all of us; therefore, you decide to do  what is good for all of us, not just what is good for your ego.

If you so choose to live, that is, to be directed by love, metaphorically called the Holy Spirit, you will still have your ego, body and personality but you ignore them and what they ask you to do (I still have my  warrior ego that does not tolerate command from any one).

If a person does wrong to you, for example, your ego asks you to bear grievances and get even with him but the Holy Spirit asks you to forgive him and relate to him from love; you choose to relate to him from love and in so doing know peace and joy (if you choose revenge you have chosen conflict and war, hence know no peace and joy).

Whenever you decide with love you feel loved, light and happy and peaceful; you feel carried along by cool breezes and life becomes effortless for you.

OCCASIONAL HOLY INSTANTS

If you firmly and convincingly say to you that you are not your ego and body and mostly allow the Holy Spirit to speak and act through you, occasionally you would experience Holy Instant. Here, you do not see your body and the physical world; instead, you see the world of light forms or even experience formless oneness with God.

But you do not stay in the Holy Instant, aka mystical union of God and his son, Samadhi, Nirvana, Satori,  for too long or else your body would die; you must therefore return to your body and keep on living as a person in body until you finally die (death is not what happens to us against our wishes; each of us chooses when he will die and the manner he will die; nothing happens to us accidentally; everything that happens to one is according to one's script; one dies when one's life mission is accomplished and one has nothing more to live for).

If one lives a loving and forgiving life one lives peacefully and happily doing what one has aptitude for, enjoys doing and doing it effortlessly.

For example, I get up in the morning, usually around 5 AM, write a 3-5 pages metaphysical essay, such as this one, then go to school and teach secular subjects; students would not know that I have a private life dedicated to God. I do these things rather effortlessly. I do not struggle for anything. If I need money somehow it comes to me. A loving life has its benefits.

When my function is performed, when I am done doing what I came to the world to do, give the world a new metaphysics, one that combines science and meta-science, I die and transit to the world of light forms, a world I already have many friends at (including my brother Joshua Ben Joseph...Thomas was his literal brother 2000 years ago...even then Joshua spoke in parables while Thomas, the brain of the family, talked in clear prose; Thomas is here to clarify what Joshua said in his annoying indecipherable language).
